If you can’t get enough Figment, you’re probably going to want to make your way to Walt Disney World Resort soon.
The popular dragon character from Journey Into Imagination who has been a staple at EPCOT since 1983 recently set the entire World of Disney on fire with his own popcorn bucket.
The collectible Figment popcorn bucket went on sale as part of EPCOT Festival of the Arts and sold out just a couple of days later. Disney Guests reported waiting more than seven hours in line to pick up their own Figment popcorn bucket and just hours after the bucket went on sale, the collectible went on sale on third-party sites and sold for upwards of $300.00 in some cases.
With its amassed popularity, Disney ordered another shipment of Figment popcorn buckets and when those arrived at EPCOT, they sold out the same day, as well.
Now, Walt Disney World Resort has unveiled its new merchandise offerings for the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, which is set to begin next week on March 2 and will run through July 4. Of course, with the popularity of Figment, there’s no doubt that he’d be included, this time with Figment’s Garden Collection.
Figment shares his love of all things purple – including beets! – with an imaginative new line of wares that celebrate the springtime harvest. These creative purple pieces will launch later on during the festival at the Disney Park.
In addition, Disney unveiled four other new merchandise lines that can be purchased as part of the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival.
